Pioneer Day 5K draws nearly 100 runners

EUSTACE–The fifth annual Pioneer Day 5K drew a field of 98 participants Saturday, which included so many 11 year-old boys that a new category will be named just for them next year, event coordinator Gene Myers said.
“A hundred is a great number for this race,” Myers said, noting the event was established with high school participants in mind.
Funds raised from the event help support the Eustace High School Bulldog cross-country teams.
Starting at 8 a.m., the runners started at the Town Square, a change from years past.
William Ritter, 26, was the first to cross the finish line with a sweeping time of 16:47.53, followed by Germon Lopez, 17, who finished less than a minute behind.
Sixteen-year-old Dylon Lowe crossed at 18:29, followed by the first female, Canton High School’s Heather Sterling, 17, who started right out in front with the fastest runners. Her time was a little less than two minutes behind Ritter at 18:33.
Her mother, Cecilia Sterling, had the fastest time among the women over 40 to win the Master’s award.
Juan Lando crossed next with a time of 19:15 to win first among 20-29 males, with 15-year-old Edwin Munyos right behind him at 19:25 to win his division.
Master men’s winner Scott Granowski, 49, of Dallas crossed at 20:22. His daughter, Tessa, ranked second in the 17-19 female division with a time of 24:55.
Mark Short, fastest of the 50-59 males, finished just three minutes behind him at 23:28.
The oldest participant, Walter Hellebrand, 71, of Payne Springs, finished in 27:28.
Among the women, Dawn Summerhill was back in the Pioneer Day run eight months after having a baby, taking first in the 30-39 female division with a time of 28 minutes. Her 10-year-old son, Joshua, also ran, while Toby Keith look-a-like husband Kyle Summerhill tended their 2-year-old daughter and baby.
Hellebrand and other runners felt had the race started an hour earlier, when it was cooler, their times would have been much faster.
Hellebrand finished nearly a minute faster several weeks ago in Malakoff, he said.
Other placements included:
• 14 and younger, male – 2nd Jordan Scott, 3rd David Lara.
• 14 and younger, female – 2nd Daisy Nicholus, 3rd Whitney Smith.
• 15, male – 2nd Adam Carson, 3rd Blake Maddox.
• 15, female – 1st Ella Agold.
• 16, male – 2nd Caleb Caldwell, 3rd Stephen Morales.
• 16, female – 1st Shelby Stegent.
• 17-19, male – 2nd Aaron Alvarez, 3rd Kannon Carter.
• 17-19, female – 3rd Nancy Murff.
• 20-29, male – 2nd Johnny Lee Jr., 3rd Jeremy Barton.
• 20-29, female – 1st Ashley Hartline, 2nd Hannah Lively, 3rd Mayra Burris.
• 30-39, male – 1st Boog Ferrell, 2nd Denver Stone, 3rd Casey Peach.
• 30-39, female – 2nd Shannon Milner, 3rd Florence Ferrell.
• 40-49, male – 1st Johnny Lee Sr., 2nd Lance Vernon, 3rd Bobby Wallis.
• 40-49, female – 1st Lisa Schoonover, 2nd Suzan Montgomery, 3rd Kelly Zimmerer.
• 50-59, male – 2nd Larry Harlan.
• 50-59, female – 1st Pam Bayless, 2nd Tracy Wallis, 3rd Vicki Mosley.
• 60-69, male – 1st Gary Milburn.
• 60-69, female – 1st Judy Miller.
